Mini Sew Together Bag

I happened to see a blog post about Quiltcon earlier this week by OPQuilt.com which was really an interesting read. Her next blog post was about a mini sewtogether bag she made. Super cute right? Go to her blog and download the worksheet here: http://occasionalpiece.wordpress.com/2014/12/03/mini-sew-together-bag/

You will still need to buy the actual Sew Together Pattern from Sew Demented, only the formula for the dimensions is given.
I absolutely love this size bag and it was so fast and easy to make! It only has two pockets inside but is still fully functional!

Teacher Christmas Gifts

A friend of mine in our guild showed me the most beautiful bags she had made for her family for Christmas. She used a pattern from In Color Order blog, which also has a free tutorial which I used to make my bags.  It is a very simple pattern to follow with excellent instructions and photos. I added a layer or fusible fleece to the main print of the bag so the bag would stand up on its own when not filled. I am really pleased with the results.

Of course I had to use some super cute Tula Pink fabric for the bags. I also made myself a bag from my precious Parisville fabric with a splash of Moonshine.
